Public Policy

To promote our ethos and our services we engage with the both the voluntary and statutory sectors.

We advocate a policy agenda promoting the well-being of women and children during pregnancy by:

providing adequate resources to those offering woman-centred and child-centred counselling and care services to women during and after pregnancy

ensuring that LIFE NI has the same access to funding as other organisations offering pregnancy counselling

encouraging the relationship between the health service and the voluntary sector pregnancy counselling services which empower women to care for their children during pregnancy

researching the effects of abortion on women’s health and providing resources for counselling after abortion

working to ensure that public bodies such as the Equality Commission and the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission reflect the democratic, inclusive majority in Northern Ireland supporting laws protecting pregnant women and their children.
